ALBANY — Supporters of home-sharing platform Airbnb are expected to rally at the Capitol on Tuesday in an effort to shore up support for a bill allowing short-term rentals in New York City.

Lawmakers and advocates for Airbnb are slated to hold a rally Tuesday to push for legislation amending the state’s multiple dwelling and tax laws to allow short-term rentals in New York City. Under the multiple dwelling law, short-term rentals for fewer than 30 days without the homeowner present are prohibited in New York City, meaning that Airbnb rentals for less than 30 days are largely illegal there.

The bill—sponsored by Assemblyman Joe Lentol, D-Brooklyn, and state Sen. John Bonacic, R-Mount Hope—seeks to amend the law to “legalize responsible home sharing in New York,” according to the bill memo. The proposal would also ban short-term rental hosts from having more than one listing on any home-sharing platform within New York City, and ban short-term rentals in public housing, such as the New York City Housing Authority, and in rent-stabilized homes.
